Richard Wood's "Shock Tudor" In World Of Interiors

Artist Richard Woods, known most recently for his "Wrongwoods" collaboration with Sebastian Wrong, was given full reign over a "hideous 1980s ranch house" in Woodstock, NY. This caught our eye (how could it not?) in the most recent issue of World Of Interiors, and we thought we'd share.

Woods has worked with these themes almost exclusively for years; in fact, it was his 2002 show at Deitch Projects, "Super Tudor", that initially inspired home-owner and art collector Adam Lindemann to contact Woods.

While we're not sure we could live in a house so obsessed with looking like the idea of a house, (Lindermann says "I thought I'd get a parody of what a weekend house should be.") we admire taking such bold moves with era and pattern. Many of the pieces within are designed by favorite Paul Evans.

What do you think? Perhaps not only about these images, but about the idea of satire in aesthetics? Does parody belong in the home?

For interested New Yorkers, Woods' work is available to view at Paul Smith, and to purchase via Matter.
